Timbuktu is not the tourist resort it used to be: while the security situation is not bad, logistics (electricity, water etc.) is still a issue. Hotel Hendrina Khan has managed to keep open and to maintain standards, mainly due to the hotel manager. Still has some of its tourist day charm in its foyer (alongside an heterogeneus leftover libray including...

What a great family! The owner and his sons (and other relatives) are very professional and welcoming. This hotel can accommodate groups/ meetings. A/C rooms with TV, though only 2 stations (French and Arabic). Nice continental breakfast. A good 15-20 minute walk from town, but near two banks with ATMs. In a quiet neighborhood.

...and you won't be disappointed. It's a very basic hotel situated soem way out of the town centre. Very willing and friendly staff, but rooms extremely tired and very basic. Whilst it has a bar and lounge area they are souless and you really wouldn't want to spend any time in them. Still, you wouldn't come to Mali for a...

As the name would suggest, this place is a no-go I have been cursing my travel agent ever since I checked in this godforsaken place The rooms are small and smell of rat poison, the walls are decorated with photographs of photochor applauding while Henni is performing a pole dance, the food is too salty and devoid of taste, the...

The rooms were adequate: comfy bed, hot shower, aircon. The staf were v v helpful and knowledgable and there's cold beer!...

This is supposedly the best hotel in Timbuktu. Best in this case is not very good. The rooms are very small. 12 inches on each side the bed. There is an AC unit and ceiling fan. We needed both to sleep. Our tour company described the hotel as "boutique like". Being in Timbuktu was great and I highly recommend the...

This hotel is bearable rather than enjoyable. The paucity of accommodation and attractions of Timbuktu presumably guarantee a supply of guests but few would actually choose to stay here. The only positive we could find was the standard of local dishes in the restaurant. Western style food was predictably poor. The location is away from the centre of town. Our...

I stayed here for two nights in December. The accommodation block is rather like a prison cell block with rooms off a long echoing corridor - if one person opens their door everyone hears it. I was woken in the mornings by the staff talking loudly outside. The sound of other people's air-conditioning was distressing and the curtain was really...
